Skip to comments.CNBC's Santelli Rips Media for Ignoring 9/12 DC March (Video)
Posted on 09/14/2009 12:17:02 PM PDT by Saint X
Not everyone at the NBC Universal umbrella of networks got the gag order memo about the Sept. 12 march on Washington, D.C.
Rick Santelli, who has been a target of the Obama White House and is credited with being the inspiration for the 2009 tea party movement, spoke out about how the media ignored the march. But, a year after the fall of Lehman Brothers, he was making the larger point that the government's intervention to thwart a financial crisis had been an ineffectual and potentially dangerous maneuver at the expense of taxpayers.

Maybe Santelli should go over to the Fox Business Network.
Rick is priming his resume to go to work for Fox Business.
“Maybe Santelli should go over to the Fox Business Network.”
Your post beat mine by 5 seconds:’Rick is priming his resume to go to work for Fox Business.’
Rick has had a job waiting for a long time. Fox among the top places he can go.
First they ignore you....
Time to put your money where your mouth is...
STARVE THE BEAST!
I stopped watching CNBC years ago because of their liberal bent.
Rick was a good reporter then probably a better one now.
How many CNBC people have come over to Fox or Fox Business?
Way to go Rick! The “Today Show Pretty Boys” couldn’t believe you were speaking the truth.
Wilson/Santelli in 2012
How long before Santelli moves over to FBN or FNC? Stossel left ABC... Who’s next, Lou Dobbs? There are SO few real journalists on MSM networks now, that all the real ones are headed toward Fox.
No, we need him behind enemy lines carrying out harrassment operations. CNBC has much bigger audiences than Fox Business (political orientation of their personnel aside, CNBC is the superior network, IMO), so Rick really serves the conservative agenda better where he is.
Who could ever forget “The rant heard ‘round the world”?
“What did we save?” Indeed.
I disagree...keep him over at msnbc....it pisses them off AND it keeps Santelli agitated....he does his best work swimming against the stream...over at fox he will just be another guy like us
Santelli is learning what we already know: that the Democratic news media tailors the news to meet its political agenda. Ignore them, and maybe they’ll go away.
Wilson/Santelli works for me. A politician + a businessman.
FINALLY! The Rush Limbaugh Show | 9/14/09
Rush proposes next tea party events at National Media Outlets
The media is the enemys front line defense, until they are confronted and exposed nothing gets better! There is an ABC,NBC, CBS, CNN affiliate in every city. We could ALL attend these protests nationwide! At least they would get local coverage...my CBS affiliate had NO news on Saturday night - zip! They can ignore and lie about protests when held in one spot, but they cant ignore us in every city at the same time.
The time is right...LET’S ROLL!
Poll: News Media’s Credibility Plunges CBS News 9/14/09
Nearly two-thirds of Americans think the news stories they read, hear and watch are frequently inaccurate, according to a poll released Sunday by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. That marks the highest level of skepticism recorded since 1985, when this study of public perceptions of the media was first done.
“What demonstrations? I watched network news, I didn’t see any,” Santelli said. “What demonstrations are you talking about?”
Got to love this guy!
